blocking nominee

A Quote: Benen on McCain on the American Czars

U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)

msnbc“There’s more than one angle to this story. The first is the obvious hypocrisy of Republicans who desperately want the president to have fewer czars, except when they want him to have more. There’s also the fact that a U.S. Surgeon General could certainly play a key leadership role at a moment like this, but a wide variety of senators, including McCain, are blocking a qualified nominee.”
